Banjo is my all time favourite game, so glad this is being made... just hope it balances new ideas with the ripping off of ideas from the older games... even the background music in the KS video sounded very close to BK style music. Hopefully this kind of hype might end up with Microsoft finally making a true Banjo sequel.

InnerSpirit commented on Lego Dimensions Will Feature Lord Of The Rings...:

This had my interest big time until I saw the price... compared to Infinity and Skylanders... I don't get the justification of charging double just because it's Lego... which I think makes it look cheap and nasty. Add on £30 for the level packs and as much as this probably will be a very enjoyable game... there's no way I'd ever pay that much for this.

I'd be tempted but this is too expensive for what it is... the starter pack is double what it should be... and the lego figures are just that... lego figures. I know it's meant to be Lego but it just feels keep and nasty to pay so much for so little. At least Amiibo feel like a solid collectable you can display... even the Lego Portal looks tacky. £50 starter pack and £5 a figure is all it's worth.

InnerSpirit commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

I had... and still have very little interest in Adult themed games... as a kid I was happy to smash around on Mario Kart and Ocarina of Time... I did however get several games that were rating 15 and 18 such as Perfect Dark and the Turok games... essentially because my parents judge that I knew the difference between really live and gaming ... and despite shooting monsters and people neither game felt inappropriate... I actual found the games themselves were too difficult to play at that age. It should be the parents' call but they should perhaps do a little research it the type of games they let their kids play and if possible play it themselves first.

InnerSpirit commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

I'm a traditionalist, for me Link is and always should be a guy character, because that's who he is. If Nintendo want to create a Zelda game with a new female lead or have Zelda as a playable character that would be awesome gender swapping seams a bit disrespectful to the character. Would you ask for Sonic, Mario, Samus, Lara Croft etc to mix it up... no because they're icons of gaming as is the Hero Of Time himself.

Is it still a micro transaction when it cost more than a full retail game to buy in game content?... I'm really surprised that this even exist as a Nintendo game. I guess you don't have to spend any money but those options are far too steep.

I hadn't given the idea of Nintendo themed TV much thought... though as soon as I saw the title of this article I was filled with a longing for a live action F Zero... Need For Speed/Fast and Furious with a futuristic setting... I'm so there.

I've seen a few rare figures recently that haven't interested me, Although it's tempting to buy for resale, I left them on the shelves hopefully for fans or collectors as I'm not liking the stock issues and have no intention of paying over the odds.

How can Nintendo not understand the demand for its products. Surely they must realise that it's the dedicated fan base keeping them going because take Nintendo IP's out of the equation a Nintendo would have died out years ago. I get that they don't want to flood the market, but a Zelda Limited edition of a console upgrade was always going to sell well. I guess if Nintendo don't want my money... nobody's having. Will not fund this kind of gamer exploitation.

InnerSpirit commented on More Mega Evolutions Appear for Pokémon Omega...:

Beedrill? Really... surely that one's pretty low on the Mega wishlist. Not a fan of the Megas anyway... Wish they come up with some decent new Pokémon instead of messing around with the evolutions of classic ones. Even though the games get better the actual Pokémon seem to get worse with each generation.

5700 games...you couldn't ever play them all... and probably wouldn't want to. I find it hard to find time keeping up with new release. Even if I had the money, surely its better and a lot cheaper to just buy the games you want from somewhere else.

InnerSpirit commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

Not what I was expecting... but then the GC controller is 2 generations old and there should be other options. Why design a game in 2014 that works best (for a lot of players) with a 12 year old controller? Likewise why go to the trouble of allowing the Wii U to use GC controllers and stop short support wise and have it only work with SSB... Surely some assurance of future support or plan to update for VC. I get that this is a good thing for SSB fans with a load of GC controllers but if your not in the group... this is currently a bit of a why bother moment at least for now. That said I'm loving SSB 3DS though controls aren't as good a the GC, but I'll give the Gamepad and Pro controller a go before ruling this as a huge mistake for SSB U fans.

InnerSpirit commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

Although I can appreciate what Nintendo is trying to do here. I think the concept of N3DS exclusives is a big slap in the face to early adopters. This is the first time I've ever heard of a company creating a console revision that creates new games that can no longer be played on old versions. The N64 expansion pack was at least an affordable addition, now Nintendo want you to buy a 'new' console to play new games.

53 weeks of Smash Bros news, reveals and screen shots. As much as I love the franchise surely this much hype is going to mean there's so surprises left. I get that this is probably one of the games to save the Wii U but... even I'm loosing interest in this game. Got the 3DS on preorder... but might give the Wii U version a miss. I'll be fed up with SSB by Xmas.

InnerSpirit commented on Guide: New Nintendo 3DS - Everything We Know S...:

@TheRealThanos To have any trade in value, I'd need to trade in now but the N3DS isn't out for ages (actually has no UK release window) because N3DS games won't work on it. So who's going to buy a seconded hand 3ds or XL that will potentially no longer have any new releases ? Plus dropping GBA support from the DS is not the same as dropping future support from the original 3DS. The very least I expect when I buy a console (especially from Nintendo) is that whatever revision they do to the design, I will still be able to play all the consoles games without needing to buy again. Regardless of the improvements that have been made this is still a 3DS. If you want to upgrade fine, If you want to buy a N3DS as a new customer fine but the people who are happy with the version they have are being forced to upgrade to play new games which is the sort of things fans don't expect from Nintendo and I've been supporting them all my life.

Exclusive games. Bad call Nintendo. Way to treat your fans. Spend money on a new version or you can't play new games. At least all other remodels of other consoles have been a choice and never affected the games you can play.

InnerSpirit commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

I don't get the purist who think non Mario characters is a bad thing. I've been hoping for a super smash kart outing since the GC and considering that Karting isn't something any of the characters in Mario do in their own games I don't see the issue bringing other Nintendo characters into the mix. It's a video game after all let's have some fun with it. The only reason seeing Mario and Yoshi driving around in Kart is less weird than Link is because they're been doing it longer.
